Assault rifles should be the main element in your gear. Their effectiveness is very high, regardless of the distance. Although the developers have decided to decrease accuracy of ARs, they should make your main weapon while exploring and searching for new weapons. Assault rifles have been divided into several types and several classes:
- Assault rifle – the best of its kind in the game. It has been divided into several classes: white, green, blue, purple and orange. The first three (white, green and blue) use M16, whereas purple and orange are SCAR rifles. When it comes to accuracy, SCAR is far superior to M16, which is why you should pick it up in any case.
- Burst Rifle – This type of ARs is effective only on short distance. It fires short, uncontrollable bursts, which is why it is not as accurate as a regular assault rifle. This rifle has been divided into several classes – white, green and blue.
- Scoped assault rifle – this rifle is a perfect replacement for a sniper rifle, thanks to its scope. Still, it is not as effective as assault rifles over short and medium distances. Due to its rarity, there are only two classes of this rifle: blue and purple. Scoped assault rifle is perfect for combat towards the end of the match, when enemies are standing on their fortifications at medium-long distance.
Sniper rifle w Fortnite: Battle Royale is the only weapon using « bullet travel ».

- Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle – This version is not as powerful as bolt-action sniper rifle, but it makes up for that in rate of fire and clip size.

Just like in the case of Bolt-Action, there are several classes – purple and orange.
